N3, the idea of a cross-territorial performing and visual arts network has a place at the national table and is already recognized at the CAPACOA (Canadian Arts Presenting Organization) National Network Meetings and has the moral support of Heritage Canada.
There was a meeting of all stakeholders from each of the three northern regions in Yellowknife in March 2010. It was decided at that meeting, that work would continue to strengthen each regions’ presenting capacity and then eventually move toward a larger tri-territorial organization presently called N3.
In 2014, the first Yukon Arts Presents Summit was held. Now, in 2018, we continue the conversation.
After considering the progress to date, we believe that now is the time for a gathering of interested stakeholders. The next steps will be determined at the Summit, but we hope there is concrete interest in creating a network of communities to work together for the benefit of all Yukoners in the areas of arts, culture and heritage.
